A trip to Sigiriya rock (one of the 12 world UNESCO sites) temple is always delightful and interesting. Pidurangala is a second rock temple, just as exciting and awe-inspiring as Sigiriya. It is located just north of Sigiriya and was the cremation place of King Kasyapa, who built Sigiriya temple 1600 years ago.

Another option is a day-trip to the town of Dambulla with its famous cave temple – over 2000 years old!
